Steve Perry Journey

Steve Perry Journey, Lead singers. Can not live with them, can not live without them. Or maybe you can. Two of the biggest bands of the late 70′s and early 80′s – Journey and Foreigner – played the Xcel Energy Center on Thursday night and showed that it is possible to replace an errant rock and roll lead, provided replace it with another guy who sounds exactly the same.
Foreigner Lou Gramm lost to a brain tumor that changed their voice and their priorities – which now makes Christian rock albums – while Steve Perry Journey fell more than a year, no lie, the moment of his hip replacement surgery .
Given that mortgages are not paid, the two bands by a few vocal cycle before deciding boys Xerox expert-like replication.
In the case of foreign Mick, guitarist and composer Jones is the only founding member left in the group, and since 2005, has been used in metal veterinarian Kelly Hansen in the lead. The 50-year-old, who led the forgotten hurricane lacquer act, not only classical stuck Gramm Thursday night, but did so with the kind of arrogant confidence one would expect from a rock singer of poor quality. (He also looked the part, also comes from a bit like the little brother of Steven Tyler.)
While Foreigner has released new music as recently as 2009, the band wisely stuck in the heavy artillery, and the old. Each song played was a success from its golden age of “Feels Like the First Time” to “hot blood” to “Waiting for a Girl Like You”. It was an hour classic rock block, delivered with a wink and a smile.
What makes Alien hits today still echo the thread is ridiculous, hedonistic that runs through them. Travel specialized in inspirational athlete jams, but the songs of Foreigner has worked better as a soundtrack in a small town teens to get wasted and have sex with another on the hood of Trans Ams.
Speaking of travel, Filipino Arnel Pineda recruited pop star in 2007, after hearing his amazing impersonation of Perry on YouTube. And, wow, that really replicates Perry vocal mannerisms in an almost supernatural.
Now in its second major tour with Journey, Pineda seems to have settled in a comfortable position of vocalist. And at 43, which brings a real energy, a new band in which most members have a good 15 to 20 years in it.
In reality, however, that the displacements and abroad – along with openers Night Ranger, which hit a 30-minute guitar heavy set – delivered virtually everything sped up the crowd of 13,563 might have expected to hear .
The tour, which is hitting outdoor amphitheaters for the most part, is designed to shock and awe enough to compete with all the distractions of a beautiful summer afternoon.
It may sound crazy, but the show was even more powerful and silly and funny when confined within the walls of a hockey arena. They cling to that feeling, man.
